Locally grown

Custer Schools food service director Tammy Adam, left, displays a box of carrots being served to students this week in the school lunch program. The carrots were provided by Gordon and Deb Cleveland, center and right, of Windsong Valley Gardens, located just west of Custer. The Clevelands dug up the root vegetables from one of their greenhouses where they had covered them with blankets to protect them last fall. In the near future the Clevelands and Jeff Prior will be providing much more locally grown produce for the school, including tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers in the fall.
